I just added this power feed and digital readout to my miniature mill. Total cost was about $25 for the additions. Next project out of this machine will be an adjustable aperture sight for my Winchester 94.

Nice mill... So tell me...How did you add a Dro. for $25.00 ???

kbeitz,
DRO is an 8" digital caliper, one jaw clamped to the table and one the saddle. Table travel is 8" also so it works out. Only have done the X axis so far. I don't plan anything for the Y but probably will add a dial indicator for the Z. Caliper was about $25 on sale at Harbor Freight.
